GLENDALE, Ariz. – A man has been arrested in connection with a shooting that left one person dead and another critically injured Thursday.

According to Glendale police, 24-year-old Shaquille Johnson and a 20-year-old man were shot multiple times outside their home near Glendale and 91st avenues before 3 p.m.

They were transported to a hospital, where Johnson was pronounced dead. The other man is in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his chest, according to police.

Witnesses told police the victims and the suspect, 28-year-old Efrain Hartley, know each other and had an argument before the shooting. They are all Glendale residents.

According to court documents, Hartley told police he went to the victims' home to pick up his girlfriend for work. He said he was confronted by Johnson and the other man, with whom he has had problems with before, and shot them because he felt threatened.

Hartley was taken into custody after SWAT teams surrounded his home near 81st and Glendale avenues.

"The suspect self-surrendered and walked out to the officers, and he has been taken into custody without incident," said Glendale Police Sgt. David Vidaure. "Both scenes are secure. There was no danger or threat to the public."

Hartley was booked on one felony count each of second-degree murder and aggravated assault.
